Families covered: Blundell of Ince (Ynes) Blundell

This family appears to have contained several overlaps across generations of people with the same name (William). Such, of course, is not uncommon but it can make it very difficult to pull together a pedigree. We are not convinced that either of the main sources have got it completely right. Where they contradict each other, we follow VCH.
